At Sextant Properties, we are aware that more and more people are looking for a mortgage to buy their dream property in France, and we know how difficult it is to obtain a French mortgage. That is the reason why we decided to create a new division in our London office: Sextant Mortgages.

We take our time to analyse each client’s profile in order to find the best deal available on the French market.  Sextant mortgages works with a selection of French banks offering a wide range of mortgage products and is then able to provide the customer with a tailored service. Furthermore, we are aware that the mortgage process can be intimidating due to the language barrier and the amount of paperwork:  as we speak English, we will clearly explain every single step and provide all the documentation in English.

Our website is user friendly, with all the tools necessary to understand French Mortgages: a Mortgage calculator, a FAQs section and a page illustrating all the different types of mortgages available. There is also a best rates table and a news section to provide the latest information relating to the French financial world. We will be making regular updates on current rates and deals available so it is a good idea to keep an eye open for the latest news.
